‘Sharknado’ getting long in the tooth

Just when you thought it was safe to turn on the TV: The cast for the third installment of Syfy’s “Sharknado” franchise will feature billionaire Mark Cuban and conservative columnist Ann Coulter as the president and vice president as the shark-infested twister visits Washington, D.C.

Need proof beyond Cuban and Coulter that “Sharknado” is so over? How about the final scene where a motorcycle-riding shark jumps a pool full of Fonzies?

One-bedroom, one bath, wall-to-wall sound: A retired Mountlake Terrace bus driver and his wife have made an offer on a house in Grand Rapids, Michigan, that features a 3,200-pipe church organ.

Upon notice of the pending offer, the Grand Rapids City Council passed an emergency zoning ordinance that bans the playing of the organ solo from Iron Butterfly’s “In-a-Gadda-da-Vida.”

Will you take a 2005 Ranger in trade? Ford is building a GT coupe that it will sell next year for $400,000.

Yes, it has cupholders, but, no, Dad says, you’re not eating or drinking anything when you’re in it. And don’t even think about asking for the keys.
